11 days old and a dent!

(Well it's not 11 days old, I've had the car for 11 days.)
A bit aggravated today. I found a small dent on my car in the oddest place. The flat area above the left rear wheel, parallel with the road, which I call the shelf. Something had to fall on it or it was purposely done. No paint chip or scratch.

first one is the worst one. Always thought you should just take a hammer to your door the day you buy it and get the first one yourself.

Doing it yourself DOES NOT make it any better, had mine 6 months and backed into something in the dark at midnight that wasn't supposed to be there. I bawled my eyes out for 2 hours, and then for about 2 weeks if anyone mentioned it. That was January 28th, and I am just now getting to the point that I don't get sick to my stomach when I see it. Not fixed yet, insurance deductible makes it so I have to do it out of pocket, kinda hoping someone just hits me.

Unfortunately it is something you'll have to get used to. Over the course of 3 years I've had 4 small dents appear on my passenger side. Sucks but what can you do?
